NHL player Jagr’s teeth knocked out, asks Santa for replacements!

Washington, Dec 24 (IANS) Top ice hockey player Jaromir Jagr asked Santa Claus for new teeth in his Christmas wish after the 43-year-old Florida Panthers veteran lost several teeth after taking a high stick to the face during their 2-1 win over the Ottawa Senators.

Two days after Jagr took sole possession of fourth place on the National Hockey League’s (NHL) all-time goals list, he took a high stick to the face during Tuesday’s game, making him lose four teeth, reports Xinhua.

Jagr tweeted a picture of his mouth along with a request for new teeth from Santa on Wednesday: “Dear Santa, can I get new teeth for Christmas. It’s going to be tough to eat good, at least I don’t get fat.”

Though losing teeth is a horrifying experience for most people, Jagr proved it doesn’t have to be a huge deal. Or even a deal at all. To his credit, Jagr’s first reaction was to look on the bright side — losing those teeth made him faster on the ice.

“I lost some…teeth, but I increased my speed, especially on breakaways. I don’t want to hear anything about (how) I’m slow,” Jagr joked.
